This course is about getting started with learning on test automation using Selenium. We will do a quick recap on what is a typical software test flow, like starting from requirements, testcase design, test execution, manual testing, writing automated test script, running automated test scripts. We will try to delve into what, why and how of test automation. In the light of all this we will look into how Selenium comes as a solution in solving some of the problems faced in testing. We will have introductory experience of Selenium IDE, WebDriver and Grid. Finally we will look into path to be taken going forward.
Lets get into requirements and testcases when software is made.
Test execution takes lot of effort. How much?
So, what is the PROBLEM with the whole lot of testing? and what is the SOLUTION?
Lets try to understand what, why and how of test automation.
Selenium IDE is the best way to get started with test automation using Selenium
We need to cover test execution on multiple combinations of browsers and operating systems. Selenium Webdriver and Grid come to our aid.
Introducing cool new real life like web application Whiztrial to enable you to practice on and also lets summarize what we have learned so far.
